Well Battlefield Kursk is ready for Pre Order at Plastic Soldier Company. Price being £30.00 and a Free Stug 3 for the first 500 orders . This is a big improvment of the GW price of £48 for KGN . I believe according to my sources that it is a beautiful book and far superior to the KGN which I thought was first class as well.
I believe that Normandy is going to be the first suplement which I think wasn't in their original plans but is a reaction of WHH closing and KGN now being out of print. Not a bad move IMO but I was hoping the Bulge supplement would have been next.
So excited, there's so much out there, and now that Normandy is the first supplment too (I have never, for some unknown reason been into the eastern front side of things, I'm very much a western democracies Vs Hitler type of player (if you understand my crude meaning)

THe new FOW rules ( I am not a fan of this system though many many others are) , Warlord's new Bolt Action game and this new Kursk game should make it a great year coupled with plenty of goodies to be released by Plastic Soldier Company in 15 and 20mm .
Yes, I agree, and with so many companies vying for pole position on an ever increasing market, the choices are getting better and better (both qualatitivley and quantatively).

I can only see positive things coming out of the closure of WHH. I think it will spurr people on to bring out games that are going to be fully supported . We already have Clash of Empires and War and Conquest for Ancients and all being well this (First of many?)new family of WW2 20mm Wargames.
Sadly you may be correct, but KGN was a great starting point for this new WWII venture, look where its going now! Although I am one of those dirty '28mm' WWII gamers, I don't see me changing down to 20mm any time soon (money, time etc), although I agree it is the 'ideal' scale IMHO. Would a 28 to 20mm conversion be 'that expensive?)
ps please keep us posted on things, and yes, I never ever liked FoW, BK is a great alternative to that system.
